D is the correct answer. If we look at the changes among the answer choices, we see that there is a difference between was and were, and its and their. Therefore this is both a Subject-Verb and a Pronoun problem. First, we must determine if the subject is either singular or plural. Since the subject of the sentence is ways, the verb must take the plural form. Therefore we can eliminate A,B, and C for having the singular was or has. Since the pronoun at the end of the sentence clearly refers to nation-states, we must eliminate the singular its in E, and accept D as our correct answer.
